Deal or No Deal sued
Deal or No Deal, the stupid NBC game show that airs a couple of times a week, is being sued by a former "paid audience extra" on the show.
Judy Ann Myers was taping a segment of the show last February, and during a commercial break she was told to hurry up to get into the audience so she could take part in a dance contest that was being held. Well, Myers tripped on the way down (I guess there were no handrails on the stairs and the lighting was bad) and hurt herself, and now she wants $25,000.
Hey, maybe they'll put the money in a shiny briefcase and have it delivered by a hot model and the judge will make her a deal for it! Or maybe they'll make a ruling and then say "And the judgement is...and then they'll be a huge pause in the courtroom and the music will drone on and then they'll be a commercial break.
Actually, this is one case that might have merit, since they were telling her what to do and may have not provided a safe work environment for her. (I'm not a lawyer, but I play one on a television web site.)
